The hostel was surprisingly clean and welcoming once we arrived. It was easy to find as we hopped on a buss number 88 which took us right next to the hostel. Location is realy nice, a quiet street right next to old town and you can access all the touristy stuff by feet. When we needed a cab, the lady at the reception was realy kind and helpful and ordered us a one. You can basicly ask the staff about anything and they are willing to help you out! Definitely a place to stay in Vilnius!

Nice hostel in a great location.
There were problems with warm water - had to take shower with cold water in the morning.
Gorgeous room, stunning art, amazing views over the park next to the cathedral. Immaculate, friendly staff. The hostel was fairly quiet, which I suppose is either a good or bad thing depending on your perspective :)
The location is unbeatable and that's pretty much it. The kitchen is 2x1 metres (6x3 feet) and only one (maybe two) people can fit at the same time. The bathrooms have mould and the overall bathroom/kitchen experience is grose which is too bad because this could be easily fixed with a small influx of cash. The day Ieft (Sunday morning) there were dirty plates (with food still in the) all over the kitchen, dining are and reception, The cleaning lady could not believe the scene!!!
Pogo is a great place with all the facilities you can expect. Staff is nice, though it really depends on who you get. We had the luck to talk to a receptionist who had no idea about Vilnius and travelling details in Lithuania, all her answers were basicly to google stuff. Location is great, you can walk everywhere easily, even to the central bus station. Wifi doesn't reach the top floor properly, they should use a range extender.

Very nice place, we had a nice stay. Just one comment : please buy a new iron and a new ironboard. What you have is USELESS ! Really !
The staff are very frindly and helpfull. The Location is in old-town and also not far away from the central bus-Station. I will go there again.
Good clean fun place in the heart of the city.
Awesome place that definitely deserves a higher rating on here! Though only here for one night, we had a really great time. The room couldn't have been better, and the staff were lovely and very helpful with everything. Definitely a good option if you're in Vilnius!
Good location from city centre, Staff is quite helpful and friendly, Clean and good atmosphere. I enjoyed it comfortable time.
Pretty quiet so if you're looking for a social experience I would choose another hostel. Other than that the staff was super kind and helpful and the location was right in next to old town.
Security wise is not very safe. Anyone with the code for the door can come in. There is no staff after 21:00. There is not much space for socializing, and kitchen is not well equipped to make meals. Bedroom has thin walls, but good beds and spacious. The location was pretty good too. Overall, would think twice before making a reservation.
Very good hostel with good staff, really I recommend. Just for the hostel improvements, no wifi in the rooms is not really practice! And also a bit humidity in the bathroom has to be cleaned second me. Except that, it was a cool stay.
The staff were very nice and even arranged for our laundry to be done with the hostel's. The main downside was the incredible noise, which didn't allow for anything except disturbed napping all night. It's not just the cathedral bells, which are across the street; it's the traffic under the window--Harleys, trucks, city buses, SUVs, cars, garbage trucks. We had to move a street over, which due to the mass of the buildings in-between, it was silent at night, and hardly more expensive.
The main strenght of the Pogo Hostel is that it is very well situated. The staff is pretty friendly and the room are clean. There is no real downside to the hostel, if you're looking for something nice and pleasant, this is the place.
route to hostel provided on the website is not clear!!!!!!!
I felt really disappointed by Pogo because with a little fixing it could be perfect, like the location is. The negatives are that the bedrooms felt a little bit unclean and some very dodgy electrics going on... but the main thing were the bathrooms. The showers were dirty and grotty and leaked all over the floor so as soon as someone had showered, it was a muddy mess. And shower after shower?! Hmmmm. The hostel was advertised as private bathroom too. There are no private bathrooms.
a possibility to get your clothes washed would be good.
